The first cuff is done. Many lessons learned, but that's the point, right? I whine about them in my flickr posting... 
 
 
finished cuff by you.

  ETA my whines:
I learned quite a few things whilst working on this project. 
1. gold threads are fickle
2. with stranded silk, hand exfoliation and beeswax are your friend
3. what the hell was I thinking?!!

Good thing the US scored some awesome gold today. Davis in the 1000m short track, White on the half pipe & Vonn on the down hill. I need that golden inspiration, given that I have started to put down the gold oulines around my motifs. Not quite how I thought it would go, but it's doing okay.   Trickiest two parts and deciding where to begin and end eas thread and to get the teensy points of metal to come together.

I have down more of the gold, but still have a ton to do.

We just got in these cool, new embroidery patterns yesterday - Extreme Costumes Coif Patterns. SOOO pretty... Now I just have to pick one. And the colour(s) of silk. And the linen... So many decisions.

I highly reccommend dropping by Kray Kat & checking them out. They are so awesome. http://www.krazykatfiberhaus.com/

Whew!

What a busy last week and a half. Two weekends, back-to-back, out at Randle. The week in between was spent doing laundry, trying to remember the things we forgat the first weekend, and forgetting a completely different list of crap the second one. At least no one forgot underpant the second weekend... FYI, Morton "doesn't sell clothes", according to the clerk at the IGA. Further FYI, the sporting goods/outdoor/garden store has a *very* limited supply.

Both weekends were very fun. Enjoyed spending time with friends, making new ones, and being introduced to a few amazing people I have admired from afar.

We have new baronial champions, all very deserving. Single-entry arts and sciences was cool. I am always blown away by the talent that abounds in our populace. It isn't just isolated to those who are "artsy". Our guys & heavies are quite talented! Cool feast box, Sir Gernon. Awesomely beautiful and well-documented leather bag-belt ensemble, Lord Abrahe. My embroidery was Baroness'e choice! With everything else out there, I was truly surprised.

Today, I have spent doing laundry. Lots. Of. Laundry. Sleeping bags. Garb. And yes, underpants.
